WinBlue Jays 7 W: Tomo Ohka (1-2)
H: Casey Janssen (4)
H: Scott Downs (3)
H: Jeremy Accardo (1)
S: Jason Frasor (2)
9-10, 1 game winning streak

Red Sox 3 L: Tim Wakefield (2-2) 12-6, 1 game losing streak
4-1-1 series record
Highlights: Tim Wakefield had his fourth quality start of the season while striking out five. Dustin Pedroia notched his first two RBIs of the season with a double off the F.W. Webb sign with the bases loaded in the fourth.


Vernon Wells muscled a two-out double that hit the warning track before caroming off the scoreboard. He would steal third and score on a throwing error by Doug Mirabelli.


In the fourth Aaron Hill got caught up between first and second while eying Royce Clayton’s fly ball to center and the second base umpire Adan Dowdy. Ironically, because Hill was on the base paths, Dowdy was watching him and it was third base umpire Dan Iassogna’s call. To add insult to irony, Iassogna’s call on Wily Mo Peña’s “catch” may have been incorrect. The result: an 8-1-3 double play to end the inning.


Frank Thomas launched his third homer of the season off the Volvo sign in the sixth with Wells on base.


Mike Lowell pulled a single past the diving shortstop for a leadoff single. The Red Sox third baseman would later score on a throwing error by Clayton.


Hill doubled to left in the eighth, advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Clayton, and tagged up on a sacrifice fly to right by pinch hitter Adam Lind. John Gibbons does his best imitation of Tony LaRussa.


The relentless Wells tripled in the ninth and Hill, of all people, deposited the ball onto the ledge of the Monster.


Ten Red Sox runners left on base.
